Holiday Giving options
CFI’s Adopt-A-Family program is full for 2018, we encourage you to participate in one of the other giving options this holiday season.
Thank you for your interest in participating in the Foundation for Children & Families of Iowa’s holiday giving program. Items donated will be utilized for CFI programs and current clients that are not participating in our Adopt-A-Family program. As the holiday’s approach and stress levels increase so does the need for CFI’s domestic violence shelter/outreach and other services. Many of these families started receiving services after the sign-up date had passed for our Adopt-A-Family program. The ability for these moms, dads, and caretakers to have access to these items will relieve some of the stress and allow them to experience the holidays as everyone else does in a safe environment full of smiles and happiness.
This program will allow these clients to choose gifts for their kids and family, get cleaning supplies and household items, and replenish their pantry with nonperishable food thus alleviating some of their struggles during the holiday season. There will also be a wrapping station available for the families to wrap their gifts.
